What's Up Wednesday

Since I am home, I can start getting back into blogging and doing the usual posts I love. On a Wednesday, I would usually do a "So What Wednesday" post, however, I don't see a link up to that anymore so I am going to be doing "What's Up Wednesday" presented by Jaime.  There are four categories/questions you answer every Wednesday, and of course link up with other bloggers.

Without any further adieu, here is my first ...

1. What I'm Reading 
 Unfortunately, I am still working on the book "Hemlock Grove". I didn't really have the time to read for six months but I read a bit when I was the airport and I am almost done. The next book on my list is "Gone Girl" and can't wait to start reading again.

2. What I'm Writing
 I've been writing a lot of emails, end of contract surveys and blog posts. I missed blogging a lot while out at sea so while I am home I am going to be blogging again and next contract I am actually going to take time and blog. I feel like it's a good release and it will allow you guys to actually follow my journey along with me.

3. What Inspires Me Right Now
 These words - "Take a chance. Because you never know how absolutely perfect something could turn out to be." I am going to live by these words with a few situations in my life right now because I think they completely ring true.

4. What Else I've Been Up To
  Trying to get adjusted to being at home and trying to catch up on sleep. I have been home for a week now and I am finding it really hard to adjust and to sleep. Last night was the first night since being home that I actually slept and slept in. I'm usually wide awake anywhere from 7am - 8am. We also went to PA for a few days which probably didn't help my "winding down" at all. Hmmm, what else ... unpacking. Isn't that the worst?? I HATE packing but I think I have a new hatred for unpacking. Still not completely done, just have to organize a few more things but it's more than half way there. I am also going to be adding/taking things away from my blog to add some new stuff so it's not always the same.

What's Up with your Wednesday?


  1. "While at sea" Wow. Sounds like a story all on its own.

    Unpacking is horrendous. I live out of a suitcase for as long as possible :P

    Gone Girl is AMAZING :D I really hope you enjoy it!

    1. Thank you for reading :)

      Yes, at sea is a story on its own. I am at sea for 6 months at a time and it's a completely different world. It's absolutely amazing.

      I used to love packing and unpacking, now, I dread that time. Especially when I'm heading out to sea again. There has to be an easier way!! LoL

      I'm glad you enjoyed Gone Girl. I am looking forward to reading it.


  2. That is a wonderful quote...glad you are going to live by it, sounds fantastic!

    And yes, unpacking is horrible! It is one of those neverending projects, isn't it?

    1. Thank you for reading :)

      I'm glad you like the quote. I started to while away from home and it's been wonderful so far. It's a bit scary and nervous at times, but the words are so so true!

      Unpacking is a never ending project for sure! Probably an understatement! I've been home a week and I still left some of it.
